Make your house the most festive, fall-friendly one on the block.BY COUNTRY LIVING STAFFJUN 12, 2019
It’s fall, y’all! Not only does this widely-anticipated season scream cozy hayrides and all pumpkin everything, but it also means it’s high time to swap out your old warm weather decorations and make way for new autumn home decor. There’s no shortage of ways to dress up your interior for the occasion, but make a statement before friends and family even walk in the door with any of these gorgeous fall porch decor ideas. Wreaths, gourds, garlands, and more will instantly add curb appeal and get your home in the seasonal spirit. There’s truly something for every porch color palette, be it a neutral mini pumpkin patch to contrast a bright front door, or corn stalks to complement a lighter setup. Space won’t be an issue for these outdoor fall decor pieces either. Smaller spots can make do with a DIY crate display or basic burlap banner, whereas you can dress up more spacious wraparounds with plaid couch pillows and bales of hay. And know that you don’t need to go all fall to the wall—simple touches like a blanket-covered rocking chair or a chalkboard sign will easily suffice and look just as nice. Ultimately, whether you go with something classic, modern, or unexpected, there’s a look that’s sure to fit your style.
Add height to your porch pumpkins and fall plants by painting and stacking a few wooden crates. Align them however you please, then line with the bottom with hay.
Matching cornstalks, an array of pastel pumpkins, and a charming door wreath bring this neutral color palette to life. If you look closely, you can also see more mini pumpkin inspiration lining the topiaries.
Plain orange pumpkins are classic, but you can also brighten up your front steps with cascades of copper, off-white, and gray. Bonus points if you have lanterns on hand that are fit to match.
Who needs a doormat when you can commemorate your family’s last name with the next best thing—front porch pumpkins!

Add some serious seasonal curb appeal with these easy autumn DIY projects.
For the garland: Cut a piece of ½-inch jute rope to your desired length (add a few extra inches to get the drapey effect at the top) and attach corn husks and silks with a hot-glue gun. (You can also use tamale wrappers.)
For the wreath: Start with a flat-wire 18-inch frame. Hot-glue corn husks (roughly 18) and corncobs (roughly 9) in an alternating pattern. Fray the ends of the corn husks to add dimension.
No need to break the bank for this simple look—you probably already own most of these materials.
If you have a bushel basket: Repurpose it as a rustic planter, or use it to corral outdoor items.
A neutral color palette doesn’t have to be boring! Use spray paint to coat pumpkins in white or metallic gold for a modern but simple scheme.
